If you have Sky, who did you watch the Chinese Grand Prix with -Sky or the BBC?

Which was it?

I ended up with Sky for most the race commentary (although the commentators' sound levels were too low, but Crofty is always loud), but switched to the BBC as soon as the race was done.

The beeb, but only out of interest of how it would compare, back to Sky from now on though.

Had the international Sky feed and compared to the Beeb feed I had I much preferred the beeb. They seemed to cut to their own cameras in pit lane more and had replays of incidents that sky just did not do, they were at the mercy of the FOM feed choice of replays it seemed as when MS had that bad pitstop my beeb had already shown a replay of the stop while my sky feed (on OneHD) had MS on the grass getting out then cut to an ad.

An ad Sky don't show adverts during the race?

Did Martin do an in depth technical feature on the upgrade of his wallet capacity?

OneHD which uses the sky feed does in Australia, even so the BBC had already shown the replay before the ad.

Does it matter?

Considering there is a squillion page thread on the subject already. If this really is a contentious issue in your lives, i'll happily swap with you!

I watched the race on Sky, but the post race analysis on the BBC. I think the Beeb do the analysis better.

I put my thoughts on the other Sky thread,but now have skimmed through my sky recording of the race I watched on the Beeb,to compare.I reiterate my views that I WILL WATCH WHATEVER THE BBC CAN COVER INSTEAD OF SKY.The whole BBC Team was better,opinions better,DC as good if not better tnan the greedy Brundle,and Gary Anderson when used to being an Engineer TV commentator will be excellent.I actually missed Eddie Jordan's amusing take on things and taking the **** out of Bernie from time to time.The Prelim freepractice though I find good on Sky,but maybe the BBC will do that as well for the European Races.If so then I would watch the lot on the BBC,as I do find the Sky HD Box very user unfiendly,as I have to keep hunting channels from HDMI1 or 2 or External 1 2 and then TV,which does not come up on a menu,but you have to keep hitting "help" and "TV" to get the correct one,which my Wife does not able to do on a regular basis,so causes unnecessary friction,when I am about to watch the Race on BBC Freeview,instead of BBC on Sky!!!!!!Also but digressing,I am finding the whole Sky HD thing a pain as it cuts the picture when trying out an HD format of a normal channel,so I revert back or go on Freeview!!!!Am I the only one with this problem,or is Anno Domini getting in the way????I would point out I stopped racing myself in low formulas in 1971!!!

No idea what problems you have going on there? Why do you need to change inputs? Everthing that's available on Freeview or terestrial should be on Sky. Should be a 1-stop shop.

I watched the BBC and felt right through the program it was better than SKY and I agree, the biggest difference is in the post race analysis, like night and day, especially Garry Anderson chatting on the grid in the red button forum SKY's efforts are just pitiful by comparison.

Watched on the Bbc , I still say that the Sky coverage is no better but Sky just edges it for me because of the Legends programmes and season reviews . I found EJ quite humourous this weekend especially during quali when Seb went out in Q2 and EJ said "where is the finger now" . Bit cruel but funny .

In the main, I'll watch the BBC when they're live and when they aren't, it'll be Sky. I like the family camaraderie at the BBC and Edwards I've known longer as a commentator than even Brundle.

This morning I watched about 80% the BBC going over to Sky for my brief Brundle fix. There's very little to choose from either in the commentary box, the race is safe with both. Brundle is probably the most dialed-in, Croft is losing some of his nerves I sense. I think the difference between the two are in the approaches with build-up and post-race reporting. Croft and Brundle are beginning to gel although I did think that DC and Edwards where getting a little too frisky with the word 'crucial'.But that's just a small thing. Good stuff anyway.
